Police arrested Christina M. Gradillas, 30, of 3705 1/2 Loveland Road, on child-endangering and drug paraphernalia charges after witnesses reported seeing her drop her 4-month-old baby three times in the snow and on the pavement as she was walking on Midlothian Boulevard Thursday.

When officers found Gradillas around 4:20 p.m., she said she was trying to make it to a doctor because the baby had fallen off of the couch earlier.

Gradillas was not speaking clearly and was unable to control herself physically, police said. Marks on her arm were consistent with heroin use, and a suspected crack pipe was found in her bra.

The baby was taken into the custody of the Mahoning County Children Services Board, and Gradillas was taken to the Mahoning County jail.
